Server installed (it did fix the grinding halt issues, but the
disabled/asleep issues remained). I then took the advise of several
people, and installed a fresh copy of OS X Universal, 10.4.7 (then ran
10.4.8 upgrade), and the problem still exists (I did not have to tune
the server otherwise, they've seemed to got their act together with the
other issues).

I have two things you can try, first ssh into your server and type this

sudo serveradmin settings afp

You'll get a long list of all your afp server settings.  Firstly, you'll
probably notice a setting called "afp:idleDisconectTime = 1448".  This
is the length of time that your clients can remain disabled/idle before
they are booted off the server.  The default value is 1448 min (or about
24hrs).  To change this setting, type the following:

sudo serveradmin settings afp:idleDisconnectTime = x (where x is the
number of minutes you want to allow your clients to sleep before their
connection is terminated)

The other value to look at is afp "maxThreads = 40" (Note: since you
upgraded to 10.4.7 Uni, this value may be higher).  I set my maxThreads
to 200 and it seems to be working good for me, you'll want to tinker
with this value to find one that works for you.  To change the
maxThreads, type the following:

sudo serveradmin settings afp:maxThreads = x (where x is the number of
maxThreads your server makes available to the clients).
